Khristós masse / messe > Cristesmæsse

This name derives from the Old English “Cristesmæsse”, composed of two elements: From the Ancient Greek “Khristós (Χριστός)" (anointed one) plus from the Old English “masse / messe” (A holiday, sacred day). In turn the name means “the day of the Lord, the day of Christ, a festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ ”.
